Abstract : Drug interdiction is one of the major US efforts to stop the illegal flow of narcotics across the border. Using Mexico, Jamaica, and the Bahamas as examples, the study looks at current US interdiction programs and factors which could increase cooperation. Recommendations include recognizing the political realities in host nations before requesting cooperation, and balancing interdiction within the entire US anti-drug effort including education, prosecution, and treatment.
